AWARD CEREMONY: STARTER AWARDS
By invitation only
Presented by the City of Munich since 1985, the Starter Film Awards have a long tradition. This year, the award ceremony will be held at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN for the first time. Each year, three Starter Film Awards of 6,000 euros each are given to artistically outstanding films made by young, unestablished Munich filmmakers. Furthermore, the Starter Film Award / Production, donated by ARRI Media and having an equivalent value of 6,000 euros, will be given for the postproduction of a film that is yet to be made. Previous award-winners include now-established directors such as Maren Ade, Philip Gröning, and Oliver Haffner. The recipients of the 2019 Starter Film Awards will be announced at the award ceremony.
